The Ghanaian architect who designed the National Museum of African American History and Culture in the U.S.A has been honoured in brief ceremony in Accra.

Professor Kwesi Botchwey of the National Development Planning Commission (NDPC) honoured Mr. David Adjaye for his outstanding achievement in architecture at the Archi-Afrika Design and Architecture Gallery at James Town in Accra last Friday.

The NDPC Chairman noted that Mr. Adjaye’s strides ties in nicely with the 40 year development plan formulated for the country where Ghanaians across the globe who project the country in positive light through their deeds come home to offer their expertise in nation building as well.

“I am very honoured to receive this citation. It means a lot to me. I love my country and the people who have been supporting me for many years. Architecture defines our civilisation and the mental state of our people. We can, therefore, use it to do a lot to change the lives of our people,” Mr Adjaye submitted in his acceptance speech.
